Although I've never really been into MMOs, I've always liked the fact that Guild Wars didn't require a monthly subscription. Shell out for the game once, and you can play it as much as you'd like. Guild Wars 2 will take the same approach, and a new trailer showcases some of what we can expect from the game.
The lengthy video shows splashes of artistic flair, in addition to an impressive variety of characters, environments, and combat. Also, there's a giant robot.
Our very own Scott Wasson sank many hours into the first Guild Wars, and the sequel looks to be a big step forward. An official release date hasn't been announced yet, though. According to the official FAQ, alpha testing is already in progress, and a closed beta is slated to begin before the end of the year. An open beta will follow, while the final product will be released "when it's ready."
